Most externships require that students be in their junior or senior year of dental school in order to apply. Externships are 1-4 weeks in length. Externs will be able to assist oral and maxillofacial residents with surgery and other procedures as well as attend conferences, seminars and other training opportunities.
The externship is different than just observing. Externships provide real, hands-on work experience for medical students. Externs will work with an attending physician and perform clinical duties such as assessing patient histories and performing physical examinations. All extern duties are done at a hospital under the supervision of a U.S. licensed attending physician.
Whether students are looking for experience in the field of medicine, providing software and technology support, or developing health and other programs for the clinic, they are sure to find an experience that will enrich their classroom learning.
